teacher america folks participate in teacher u. i'd like to just talk a little bit about how we approach this work. we have a textbook that we've developed that we use with our core members called teaching as leadership. we're releasing a version actually this month or early this month that we're hoping to sort of share that knowledge that we've accumulated by looking at our exceptional teachers more broadly and really just enter into a conversation with people in this sector about what we can do to better prepare and support teachers in general. and one of the things that we focus on that we found in our high performers is their ability to invest students in their work. and, you know, chubb says in his paper students begin lessons unmotivated, they will simply not make the hard effort necessary to learn. agreed. i mean, i couldn't agree more. but i'm not sure that technology will motivate students. i mean, and i'm not sure how you get students to engage in the technology if they have this past of not being successful and don't feel like they want to engage in the work and doubt their ow

to find out how america got rolled, began hearings this week. these four are not the victims of one of the greatest bank heists in history; they're the perpetrators, bankers so sleek and crafty, they got off with the loot in broad daylight, and then sweet-talked the government into taxing us to pay it back. watching that scene on the opening day of the hearings, it was hard enough to believe that almost a year has passed since barack obama raised his hand, too, taking the oath of office to become our 44th president. even harder to remember what america looked like before obama, because we've also been robbed of memory, assaulted by what the nobel laureate czeslaw milosz described as a "fantastic proliferation of mass media." we live in a time "characterized by a refusal to remember." inconvenient facts simply disappear down the memory hole, as in george orwell's novel, "1984." president obama's made plenty of mistakes during his first year, and we've critiqued them frequently here on the journal, but hardly anyone talks anymore about what happened in the years before obama. he inher
